Prairie girls hit the beach


This is why I love Southern Florida  – beautiful 80 degree days (in January!!) spent relaxing on the beach.  It was a windy day, but the sun was shining, and the girls were very busy searching for shells, splashing in the shallows, and building fairy castles in the sand. 

Tum Tum really enjoyed himself, too.  After a brief attempt at eating the sand, he settled for just squishing his fingers and toes in it.   A pair of osprey kept circling overhead (their nest post was directly behind us), and he’d squeal with delight when they flew over.

This weekend we’re driving the half an hour to Sanibel – with the best shelling in the world, but yesterday’s excursion to Bowditch Beach was a wonderful beginning to the sun-n-sand season.


Ahhh, bliss…

    The water is so beautiful, and i loved the boardwalk back to the parking lots. Isnt that where the big birds have the nests that are up on man made landings for them.?
